Arrival: On Sunday at the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport, meet your fellow travelers and guide(s)-extraordinaire. We then hit the ground running, stopping only for some fun at “the best little zoo in the world”!
Day 1: You gotta appreciate the places where you still have to climb down from the plane onto the airfield.
You’ve just touched down in Belize, the only part of the colonial British realm that has Maya pyramids. Apparently there are some major discoveries being made in the jungles as we head in the direction of Guatemala. We will need to find a jungle lodge that will host us. I’m hoping for swing bridges and dense canopy so that the night envelopes us, allowing for a good night’s sleep. We are going to need it! [L,D]
Day 2: This might be a perfect day to explore some waterfalls.
Your updated adventure journal calls for exploring some beautiful waterfalls in the jungle, and tonight we will gather at a local market place for some well-earned feasting. [B,L]
Day 3: I keep getting this ‘floating sensation’. I know I am not dreaming, so what does this mean? The wire cable says that we are in for a full day’s adventure. When we lost contact, they were telling us to meet them by some caves?
Hitting the road later today, our next lodge is best accessible by riverboat. I’m wondering if the “African Queen” is still available.
Was that a toucan that I just saw flying by? Here at the beautiful Lamanai Outpost, we have some really exciting plans. This place is really deep, deep in the tropical jungle so all kinds of creatures are afoot.
The lodge tonight should have some great food and froth. It will be a fantastic way to celebrate with my travelling adventurers, both old and new. [B,L,D]
Day 4:Finally, finally, I have the chance to climb a Mayan Temple. With names like Mask Temple, Jaguar Temple and High Temple, we are going to feel like we are in an Indiana Jones movie. This site, under excavation since the 1970’s is the remnant of a mighty Maya culture. We are going to climb High Temple and maybe make a sacrifice. Now which one of our new friends can we afford to lose? Well, maybe no sacrifices today.
But be prepared…tonight is going to be a night of nocturnal wonder. [B,L,D]
Day 5:Amidst one of the world’s most amazing coral reefs, how incredibly beautiful.
Our new home for the remainder of our time here is on the bustling islet of Ambergris Caye. I think the last sighting of Tully Mars was somewhere here on this island. Boy are we going to have fun around here. [B,D]
Day 6:Boating, partying in tropical waters
Off by boat to some incredible coral reefs and tropical islands with stunning beaches. Belize has one of the largest coral reef systems in the world; pristine waters and colorful marine life will dominate our day at sea. [L]
